E-bike routes in and around Ischgl
Lareinalm hut (1,851 metres above sea level)
The Larein valley is located between Ischgl and Galtür. The route leads along a calm and quiet – slightly secluded – trail and is particularly enticing for e-bike riders.
Length: 22.5 kilometres
Difference in altitude: 637 metres
Duration: 2 to 2.5 hours
Starting in Ischgl, this route initially leads you along the valley trail Paznaun all the way to Mathon. Then, you’re biking through the forest and along the Lareinbach brook – going moderately upwards to 1,860 metres above sea level on a gravel trail. The Lareinalm hut is only farmed in the summer months and the only building in the area far and wide.
After a little snack at the hut, you can decide for yourself if you would like to explore the enticing Lareintal valley some more or if you’d rather just go back down to the valley. Always at your side: the incredible panoramic views of the impressive Larein.
On the way back, you’ll pass the picturesque Stafali pond, then the wildlife park Mathon and, finally, you’ll get to bike along the valley trail back to Ischgl.
Kops reservoir (1,853 metres above sea level)
The route around the Kops reservoir is moderately difficult with its 700 metres of difference in altitude. But it’s a fun panoramic route with only a few gentle inclines along the way.
Length: 38.5 kilometres
Difference in altitude: 714 metres
Duration: 3 to 3.5 hours
First, you’ll bike along some valley and panoramic trails to Galtür and, from there, past Lake Zeinissee towards your destination: the Kops reservoir at 1,830 metres above sea level. It’s certainly one of THE most beautiful places at the Paznaun! The intense blue of the lake and the surrounding 3,000 metre summits round off this e-bike adventure.
A tour around the picturesque lake starts on a gravel road which turns into a trail. This trail is primarily flat and, hence, easy to ride on. Afterwards, the alpine inn Zeinisjoch right at Lake Zeinissee is the perfect location for a little “pit-stop” with a stunning view of the mountains.
The way back leads you – at the other side of the valley – along the other side of the Kops reservoir. Truly a dream route with plenty of landscape highlights!
